Item details

This listing is a file for embroidery machines, not an embroidered item.

It is the center of the Tennessee state flag, sized for a 6" x 10" hoop. It is an applique, where only the background circle is appliqued. The stars are stitched. I used it to make placemats.

Stitch count, actual dimensions, etc., are shown on the blue & white photograph. The red, white and blue photograph is my test stitching.

The zip file includes the design in the following formats: DAT, DST, EMD, EXP, HUS, JEF, M1, PCS, PES, PHC, VIP, VP3, and XXX. Other formats available on request.

I have not included any written instructions with this file since it is so simple. If you have never done machine applique, just know that your machine will first sew a placement outline and stop, at which point you should insert your applique fabric. It will then run a double row of running stitches to tack down the applique, and when the machine stops, you will remove the hoop from the machine (but don't unhoop the fabric!), trim away the excess applique fabric, and return the hoop to the machine. When you press "start" again, the machine will sew the white border, then the stars.

FYI: In case you are making a whole Tennessee flag and want the "official" proportions to be correct, the white border around the applique is 7 mm wide. The white stripe that borders the blue edge on the official state flag should be the same width as the white border around the circle.

My test-sew was done on burlap with rayon thread and tear-away iron on stabilizer.

If you need the design in a different size, send me a note, but be aware that I cannot test sew anything larger than 6 x 10, so you'll have to do your own test-sewing for larger designs.
